WebMD Recipe

This is an Amish white bread recipe that has been converted to a bread machine and made a bit more healthful by using half whole wheat, canola oil (and a little less of it) and less white sugar and salt than the original recipe. The reason salt is not eliminated completely is because a certain amount of salt is needed to help control the yeast as well as for flavor. You could choose to use 1/4 teaspoon instead if you prefer.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup
    warm water, 110°F
  • 1/4 cup
    white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons
    active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons
    canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups
    whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups
    unbleached white flour
Instructions
  1. Add first five ingredients to bread machine pan starting with water, sugar, oil, and flours. Make a well in the center of the flour and add the yeast and salt to the flour in a corner of the machine.
  2. Turn the machine to DOUGH cycle if you want to add the dough after the first rise to your own pan for the second rise (to bake in your own oven). Otherwise set your machine to whatever baking cycle you prefer.
